The atmosphere - right on the Gulf of Mexico - is perfect, The food is all delicious. Our server, Adriano, is sure a handsome Italian, fun, efficient, and full of charm! Request him. We lives here, so drove to restaurant (located in LaPlaya Resort). They offer only valet parking, which I understand. Tipping the valet is no problem, but their... More

Baleen in the La Playa Hotel is located right on the beach in North Naples. It is a great restaurant with an amazing view, especially at sunset. For a birthday or anniversary, you would be hard pressed to find a more romantic, idyllic, scenic location. The location at sunset is unparalleled. The food is worthy of the price and location....

The Baleen Restaurant has a terrific location right on the Gulf of Mexico and the outdoor tables are perfect for viewing the water. Dwayne is a knowledgeable, friendly, professional and attentive server. My New York Strip Steak was cooked perfectly and was tender and very delicious. I would recommend Baleen to anyone looking for a great restaurant in Naples

Great food and perfect view of beach. I've tried breakfast, lunch and dinner and all were great. Only negative is that they recently started charging $5 for parking, even if you're going to the restaurant.

Great location and atmosphere, especially with the beach, sunset, torches, fire pits and Cosimo, our server, who was terrific. A bit of a splurge but everything you want for a great night out.

I've been to Baleen a couple of times now and cannot stress enough how amazing this place is. Food is superb, service is even better. Cosimo was our waiter and he was awesome and so personable, definitely ask for him when you go. Never a bad meal at Baleen! One of my favorites, I highly recommend!

On a cold, blustery SW FL day we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at Baleen in the LaPlaya hotel. Quickly this became one of our favorite spots. The Benedicts were terrific, and pancakes. That said, the $24.95 buffet was a steal. We sat outside, closer to the surf and under the warm heaters. Loved it. Look forward to going back.

We have been going to the Baleen for many years. It is one of our local favorites. Upon hearing it was our guest's birthday, Chef Solis created a special dessert for her and sent it table side. He then followed up with a quick visit during an insanely busy time to see how we were enjoying it. It was the... More
